1 on thinkpad 770z and another on thinkpad t41
both with ecs 1.2
more than 5 attempts at installing ecs 1.2 have been made
on a thinkpad 770z to get pcmcia working,
during install I have selected 770z under notebook setup
and also select all pcmcia drivers support (flash, harddisk, modem)
After install, nothing on pcmcia works, even though
plug and play pc director shows that it sees both a
hard disk and a 3com etherlink III network card.
(thus I can not network!)
I have also tried selecting on subsequent installs
to skip pcmcia support altogether and put older
back level (1999) pcmcia from ibm diskette based installed
770z notebook drivers ... with the same result.
Does anyone have this working with ecs 1.2?
now onto the thinkpad T41 .... pcmcia harddisk
stuff sorta works but during file transfers from pcmcia harddisk
to internal hard drive the IRQ meter in ecsCenter is
pegged to 99% and the system is unusable until
the transfer is complete .... on large transfers from
compact flash cards (via a pcmcia card adapter) it
can take over 10 minutes (using 1 gig compact ultra II
memory cards) , testing this on a ecs 1.0 thinkpad
system does not have this IRQ problem, that system is
totally usable during the transfer.
